For some reason, i cannot connect to the internet using my current ethernet cable. I am 100% positive that adapter is working fine, as i had maintenance come into my room and check it out, but my computer won't connect to their internet through my cable

Attached is a picture of my device manager, but even through that, it appears that nothing is wrong.

Hi c2extremities, and welcome to TSG.

Many Ethernet ports on computers these days have indicator lights right by the port. Do you see any lit or blinking lights right by the port with the cable connected?

Open Start ->Program -> Accessories -> Command Prompt to get a black command line screen

Enter the following command line IPCONFIG /ALL at the prompt.

Copy and paste the complete results in a post here. You might need copy and paste the results to text file and save it to a USB thumb drive if you are using a another computer for the Internet connection.

How did they check it out? With a different cable? If so, that should be a big hint of what's wrong.

When Device Manager says there is a problem you can be sure that there is a problem. When Device Manager says "working fine" it means the body has not started to decompose. If cars had a Device Manager it would say that a flat tire is working fine with 0.1 psi. :D
